The Comedy Channel was a TV drama link channel possessed by HBO, a division of Time Warner. It debuted on November 15, 1989, at 6 PM ET. In 1991, HBO consented to combine the channel with Viacom’s contending channel, Ha!. The new system, CTV: The Comedy Network, debuted on April 1, 1991, however, rebranded to Comedy Central on June 1, 1991.
In 1990, The Comedy Channel and Ha! consented to consolidate their activities and make another channel called CTV: The Comedy Network, which appeared on April 1, 1991; before the merger, each channel had less than 10 million supporters. The Comedy Channel battled both industrially and fundamentally; faultfinders scorned the jumble of clasps from satire movies and stand-up drama acts that filled the long holes between unique programs. In request to maintain a strategic distance from disarray and trademark issues with Canadian over-the-air communicated organize CTV, now claimed by Bell Media, which is a backup of BCE Inc, the name of the system was therefore changed to Comedy Central on June 1, 1991, with the name “Parody Partners, Inc.” showing up on the end credits of all shows delivered by the new station. The first Viacom (which worked Ha!, not the present one, which Comedy Central is as of now part of) purchased out Time Warner’s (which worked The Comedy Channel and had a place with HBO) half of the system in 2003. Despite the buy, the name “Drama Partners, Inc.” can, in any case, be found at last credits on most Comedy Central shows today.
